Visite officielle à Garges-lès-Gonesse


Warm welcome for special guests

🏫 On Monday, January 16, Jacques Prévert Elementary School hosted several prestigious guests. Charline Avenel, Chief Education Officer for the Versailles School District, and Olivier Wambecke, Director of Education Services for the département of Val d’Oise, joined Hélène and Pierre Vareille in presenting our A violin can change the world program to Carlos Martens Bilongo, a French National Assembly member representing Val d’Oise, and Marc Ferracci, a National Assembly member representing French nationals abroad. Local officials and parents attended as well.

Ms. Avenel also highlighted the 3 priorities of the Versailles School District’s plan for the first 3 years of early education, which include a focus on highly innovative programs for very young children—a perfect match for A violin can change the world.

🤗 Many thanks to the Jacques Prévert staff, the violin teachers and the parents for reinforcing our guests’ conviction that programs like ours can help children succeed in school.
